Patching is the process of filling potholes or excavated areas in the asphalt pavement. Quick repair of potholes or other pavement disintegration helps control further deterioration and expensive repair of the pavement. Without timely patching, water can enter the subgrade and cause larger and more serious pavement failures.
Surface patches are usually temporary fixes. They are constructed by milling a portion of the pavement to a depth that removes all deteriorated material. The patch area should be milled to a minimum depth of at least three times the nominal maximum size of the aggregate used in the patch.
Using a 3/8 inch size aggregate or ¼ inch size aggregate will minimize the necessary milling depth, help tie the patch to the existing pavement, and provide adequate hot mix thickness to reduce the possibility of raveling.
Infrared heater patching
Infrared heater patching requires fewer workers and is often faster and cheaper than full-depth patching. Infrared heaters are truck-mounted and heat the asphalt to a depth of 2 to 3 inches, which is comparable to a thin surface patch.
The patch area is heated by the infrared heater and scarified. Rejuvenators can then be worked into the in-place asphalt or new asphalt mix can be worked into the existing material. After reworking the existing asphalt, it is compacted.
